I don’t think youtube videos normally fill up the screen – it’s a smallish frame within your browser. There is a fullscreen keystroke “f” (also a button in the player if you’d prefer to navigate to it)…not sure if it’s beneficial to invoke the browser’s own fullscreen command or not.

Hello all:


Thanks for replies, and assistance as believe that browser is now “maxed”.  Is their a similar command to max a Youtube video screen as they’re currently not filling up entire monitor .


Thanks again,




David S. Pearson

Thanks for the reply, and info, but do the Windows + up arrow key presses have to be simultaneous to maximize the browser window?

Like all X-Key+Y-Key commands, the presses must be together.  That being said, you can press X-Key, keep it held, and hit Y-Key, and that will execute the action.

That's the whole purpose of the plus designation.  In sequential presses, e.g., WinKey+X,E to open File Explorer, the comma us used to specify the next press in the sequence.  In this case, you must hold down WinKey and while its held down, hit X, then release those and hit E.
